Parents

 

1.                Parents must not coach children that are not theirs. We would also request that you refrain from coaching your own child when the coach is doing so as this is very confusing and frustrating for the children.

Bullying

No one deserves to be the victim of bullying. Bullying in football is defined as a form of abuse and Senrab F.C. will not condone bullying under any circumstances.

Bullying can be defined as:

 

1.     Physical hitting, kicking and theft

2.     Verbal: name calling, constant teasing, sarcasm, racism, sexist or homophobic taunts, comments about disability, threats and gestures. This is not 'banter' – it is hurtful and batters self esteem.

3.     Emotional: tormenting, social media and texting abuse, ridiculing, humiliating and isolating.

 

The bully in football can be:

 

1.     The parent that pushes too hard

2.     An intimidating child/young person

3.     A coach who has a 'win at all costs' philosophy

4.     An official who places unfair pressure on a child.

 

All of the above mentioned behaviour is not tolerated at Senrab F.C. and will be dealtwith under the afore mentioned Parent/Player Misconduct Procedures.

 

 

Please make sure you read and understand the above terms and conditions.

By registering your child with Senrab F.C. you agree to be bound by these rules.
